SafariCookieCutter is a simple cookie editor for Apple's new Safari Web browser. SafariCookieCutter allows any user to add cookies to Safari's cookie database, edit existing cookies, and delete cookies. SafariCookieCutter is useful for increasing the life of existing cookies, and manually importing your cookies into Safari from another browser. SafariCookieCutter is available in English, French, and German.
Cookies are persistent objects stored on your computer by the Web browser. Web servers use them to save data between Sessions and then query the data back later. Cookies have some positive uses, such as remembering user names and passwords, but they can also be used for some sites (usually advertisers) to track your Web surfing habits. Cookie editors facilitate adding cookies to the system, and removing the ones you don't want.
Now, some of you are probably saying by now: "But Safari does come with a cookie editor!" Actually, Safari, as of version 1.0, comes with an integrated cookie browser, but it does not include a cookie editor. Currently, it is not possible to use Safari's "Show Cookies" command to add cookies to Safari (other than through normal browsing), or edit the cookies that are already there. SafariCookieCutter can do both, and it can also undo mistakes and much more.
SafariCookieCutter requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later, and Safari 1.0 or later. SafariCookieCutter is a Universal (PowerPC and Intel) binary.
What's new in version 1.3:
* Fixed a bug where new cookies weren't being selected in the UI after being created on Tiger & later systems. * SafariCookieCutter is now built as a universal (PPC/i386) binary.
